Learning to Connect with the Met


I hate to admit it, but I’ve never seen a Met Broadcast at The Music Hall. I go in and give the welcome speech, but slip out as just as the music starts to swell.

Sneak Preview of The Met @ The Music Hall 14-15 Season

Not an opera buff?

Opera Connection: Tosca


The perfect way to start your day at the opera! Composer/cultural historian Dennis Neil Kleinman leads a lively, no-PHD-required discussion of Puccini’s masterful mixture of emotion and mayhem, Tosca, including its connections to Reality TV, My Fair Lady and James Bond. 

To mark the 3rd anniversary of the Connection, Dennis will be giving away free movie tickets to all, plus a chance to win a backstage pass to meet author Doris Kearns Goodwin (“Team of Rivals”) when she appears as part of the Music Hall’s “Writers on a New England Stage” series on December 4.  A light - but tasty! - brunch is included with admission.

When: Saturday, November 9 @ 11:30 am (just prior to the Met Broadcast)
Where: Music Hall Loft
Admission: $14 (includes light brunch)
Tickets & Information: Opera Connection: Tosca

Social on the Seacoast

La Traviata

If there was no Music Hall, I’d be living in New York. No question. The thought struck yesterday as I was listening to Exec Director Patricia Lynch talk about upcoming social events at The Music Hall, and how the dearth of social gatherings in corporate America today (whatever happened to those family picnics? to after-work cocktails?) has caused people to come out not only to our shows but to our social and educational events.
